Is your teams  current TML documented and available for others to
review?  If so, perhaps we should consider making it  WG draft as
well.  Given SCTP's uptake to date, i would be very happy to see well
developed TML solutions using other protocols.

I don't believe this is the case.  I have not been able to go to most
of the recent WG meetings as my research funding would not allow it
(though I did make it to the last meeting).    I have been
participating via the email list and have 'attended' the meeting
though audiocast and jabber.

I have never felt left out.  And while listening to the audiocast
sometimes meant being out of normal time, it was a lot easier then

I think that if you are interested in doing cooperative work with
others, they are more then wiling to do so with you.
